FYI/FWIW, went to get a link for VN900 service manual this morning on ManualsLib, a (previously) common place, and got this.

Product Azure Font Screenshot Technology


Tried a different model and got the same.

In some regards I'm not surprised it eventually happened because it costs a lot of $$$ to develop a proper service manual.

No doubt other sources still out there but ManualsLib had a lot and was a top search hit.

I got that, then tried again and it worked fine. Probably a server issue or they are doing extended maintenance on the servers and their bandwidth is temporarily reduced.

Still coming up that way for me. Perhaps I'll try clearing cache and check later.

I have what I need, but sometimes helpful to steer someone else that direction.

Kawasaki has unfortunately been on the case with having downloadable manuals taken down, the VN900 manual is also gone from the scribd site with the notice "This content was removed at the request of Kawasaki Motors Corp, USA" You can still view the manual on a couple sites, but anything downloadable seems to be gone now.

I bought a Service Manual for my 2014 Vucan 900 Custom, the same day as I bought it brand new (January 2016). There are printed service manuals available for most bikes and vehicles.

I also have a printed service manual for my Can-Am Spyder GS 990 and my Ford F-150 pickup.

I also have a CD Version of the Can Am, but I rarely use it. I can put the printed manual on my bike, as I am using it (thank God for spring clamps).

whoaru99 - On one post you say its our job to pay for service manuals and then on this post you go and want to get one for free???
Haven't said anything of the sort, nor am I whinging the evil greedy companies owe it to me free or that I'm entitled to it free because I don't like the price.

I just recognize the situation for what it is.

I speed on occasion, but I don't delude myself that it's not breaking the law and that the cops owe me a free pass or reduced fine just because I don't like the posted speed.
